Happy Birthday!

This morning my sweet sweet amazing husband woke me up with a great surprise! He rallied my wonderful family and organized a group birthday gift…an AQUA KitchenAid! I am unbelievably thrilled! My family is incredible and I feel so overwhelmed with cupcake support 🙂 Not to mention so so lucky (and pretty spoiled) to have a husband who not only knew I would LOVE a KitchenAid…but AQUA!? Wow!
Get ready for lots of new recipes. Between the fabulous Babycakes recipe book from Bekah and John and THE mixer I have a feeling I’ll be in the kitchen a lot this week 🙂

Hello there! I’ve been a crazy mess of sorghum flour, coconut oil & fair trade sugar lately…

But it was all worth it when I sunk my teeth into perfection:

{aka velvety dark chocolate cupcakes made with fresh brewed coffee and topped with rich silky coffee frosting}

This is a picture of the first batch of cupcakes that I officially shared (at Hayley’s welcome home party). They were a hit & are currently defending their title as favorite cupcake by my beloved taste testers.

Coffee+Cupcake=Almost too much goodness for me to handle. Email me right now so I can make you some ASAP!

Sugar Mama

Hi I’m Ashley and I am the Sugar Mama! I love gluten free & vegan baking and I’m passionate about using organic and fair trade ingredients whenever possible. I also love to experiment, so if you have other food allergies or just new flavor ideas please let me know!

I have always loved to bake but found out 2 years ago that I am gluten and dairy intolerant. My sweet tooth suffered for awhile until I discovered vegan and gluten free baking. There are some really great recipes out there and I have been working on my own as well. I love that these cupcakes (and other goodies) can be enjoyed by anyone with gluten or dairy allergies, anyone who has chosen a vegan lifestyle, and anyone who just loves a delicious cupcake 🙂
I would love for you to follow my adventures in the kitchen and please invite your friends to join! I’m hoping to do a farmers market or two before the season ends and I’ll post prices soon. If you are interested in ordering please send me an email or call and we can get something set up.
❤ The Sugar Mama
